Did I mention that I’m like running out the door? Ha, meta, I wrote this before I wrote that thing in the Weekender, and then came back and added it to the continuity for laughs and deleted the old intro! But I am not laughing at this new one from YUZUKINGDOM despite the fact that Yuzuki’s vocals seem to have the power to rip the very notion of continuity out of reality and turn it into a smoldering pile of viscera!
Go ahead. Go ahead and pretend like you thought that Yuzuki did her own live harsh vocals. It’ll be fun!

The latest (and last?) release is called “National Anthem”, and I want to know which country would claim this as their own song, because that country would be the other side of the wormhole from Event Horizon. I mean, listen to this thing:
In the ongoing saga of Q’ulle’s Yuzuki having probably the most impressive overall up-stepping solo project in contemporary idol (YUZUKINGDOM!), the erstwhile dancer-turned-singer-turned-this continues her BLOOD STAIN CHILD collaboration with a new single that isn’t quite as throat-rippingly nasty as the first track, but isn’t exactly letting you off easy, either:
Somebody explain what “Roskill Lavender” means, please
So after that last little bit of Q’ulle, I was scrolling through their feed for an overview of what all they’ve been up to lately (besides owning so hard, that is), and my eyes caught something that’s what you would probably consider to be a little atypical for the elegant, fashion-line-owning dance idols:
